Here's a hands-on, creative way to practice identifying the main idea and detail sentences! This is an engaging activity where your students match 3 details to the main idea. All of the main idea sentences are related to the Earth. These are the main ideas: Earth has a very specific place in the solar system. The Earth formed billions of years ago. The Earth has four layers. Sometimes natural disasters occur on Earth.
I have a huge Lorax & Earth Day unit and a huge Rainforest Unit on TpT but this freebie didn't make it into either unit so I want to share it here. I love lift-the-flap poems. The kids use so many skills when they make then - reading, sequencing, and illustrating. It is a great way for kids to make meaning of the poem and relate it to themselves.
